Thoughtful donation received 

The staff of the heritage trust are delighted to have received a very kind and generous donation to help conserve editions of the Co-operative News. 

This is one of the most popular collections requested by users of the Co-op Archive; so regular handling means that some volumes require specialist work to preserve them and ensure future users continue to be able to access them for research, learning and inspiration. 

The volumes are a fascinating resource about the co-operative movement and tell us a great deal about the social, economic and political life of the UK in the last century.

The donor wishes to remain anonymous but we would like to extend our thanks on behalf of staff as well as the board of Trustees.
